‘If you want to stay alive, then ante up!’
Jaws is a new officially-licensed board game from Prospero Hall and Ravensburger for two to four players aged 12 and up.
As in Steven Spielberg’s 1975 blockbuster movie, the Jaws board game is divided into two major acts.
Act 1: Amity Island:
The first act involves the player that is controlling the shark to terrorise Amity Island by attacking swimmers, while up to three other opponents – playing as Brody, Hooper and Quint – attempt to cooperatively figure out exactly where the shark is hiding in the surrounding sea.
Act 2: The Orca:
Once the shark has been located, the Jaws game switches to a second act. The board is flipped over and the game puts the three human players aboard Quint’s doomed Orca boat that is slowly sinking. These players must work cooperatively to try and stop the shark before it attacks and completely dismantles the boat. However, they don’t know where the player controlling the shark is going to make their next strike.
The Jaws board game apparently takes about an hour to play and will be available in late June for $30.
